Some things are invisible to the uninhabited look. The whereabouts of the moon during the daylight, the generosity of the fungi underneath the trees, the courage of a small step, the rhythm of a new cycle, the world views and feelings that each one carries when showing up for any collaborative endeavour.

Until a given moment… when you realise that the moon is visible in daylight nearly every day. That the forest wouldn’t hold space for so much life without the gentle exchange below ground. That the journey was only possible because of that tiny step. That adapting the pace is not a loss of what once was, but a more harmonic way forward. That the frictions and fluidness and inbetweeness that collaborative work is undergoing is deeply interconnected with the different ways the humans at play frame the world and how they feel.

Suddenly, we see. Suddenly, something changes.

Was it suddenly? Or has it been reaching out to us for a while now?

While the mind might wander distracted, the body re-minds. From whispers to slow down to whispers that we are already wearing new lenses more than ready to see the new world in front of us, it often happens that we only perceive them when we trip over. And that moment, also, still holds a beautiful and challenging invitation: to be present.

What if the key to generate anew lies in the true inhabiting of life?
